Values Ambassador

“I am a Client Principal at Objectivity.” That is my answer at birthday parties when asked what I do for a living. And then I see people with question marks in their eyes. What is a Client Principal and what does he/she do? It is even a question that my fellow Client Principals and I are […]

Build teams not superstars

Finding talented individuals is the easy part. Building a great team is a bigger challenge but the rewards can be extraordinary. We all have heroes that we look up to, people that inspire and impress us in equal amounts. It may be the lead guitarist from the rock band we still dream of touring with. […]

Performance Testing for BI

A while ago, we needed to run a significant number of performance tests for a BI application written on the Microsoft stack. The non functional requirements had been a bit neglected during the early stages of the project and when there was a change in the clients business it sharpened our focus and the number […]

What is this devops thing?

For the last couple of years I’ve been struggling a bit with the idea of devops. At the root of it, was my own lack of clarity about what devops is. My question remained unanswered and it wasn’t for the want of trying. I went to conferences, attended talks, read articles and met with people […]

Good to be back

I thought I wouldn’t make it. A third baby is cool when you love your husband, but it’s also a third howling banshee to add to the list of your 24/7 time, patience and energy eaters. So as soon as a decent babysitter has stepped on my path, I called my boss in Objectivity to […]

The secret power of introversion

Our culture values extraversion. It’s obvious. “Don’t just sit at home alone! Go out and play!” – parents tend to say to their children from an early age. “He/she is so small but so wordy! He/she will definitely succeed!” can be heard at schools or in the streets. Everywhere we can hear that only people […]
